Is the Web outdated, or is it just Prince?

The Internet has suffered a premature death–or at least that’s what aging rocker Prince believes has happened.”The Internet [is] completely over,” Prince told U.K. publication The Mirror, which published an interview with the music icon on Monday, the eve of the debut in that country of his latest CD, 20TEN. Perhaps not coincidentally the disc will be distributed in the pages of The Mirror.”The Internet [is] like MTV,” Prince continued. “At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated.” see:Prince – world exclusive interview: Peter Willis goes inside the star’s secret world

Unlike most other rock stars, he has banned YouTube and iTunes from using any of his music and has even closed down his own official website.He says: “The internet’s completely over. I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.”The internet’s like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good.”They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.”
